The Technology

Flexible and Adaptable Ankle Foot Orthosis (FAAFO) device is a patented technology designed to correct the walking style and ankle joint rotation trajectory during the gait for patients with foot lifting (dorsiflexion) and foot rotation upward (evertion) disabilities. The device is also designed to prevent foot slap, forefoot drag and forefoot collision with the ground. The FAAFO also helps to correct the ankle joint rotation amplitude in the sagittal plane.
